Hydrogen Vehicles

Hydrogen powertrains in heavy commercial vehicles use a fuel cell to convert hydrogen into electricity for the electric motor or a hydrogen internal combustion engine. They result in zero emissions with only water vapour released, improved efficiency, range, and potentially lower costs, making them a promising alternative to diesel engines. Expect to be kept informed on this ever-changing market at Freight Carbon Zero.

There are two types of hydrogen fuelled technologies, the first being fuel cell technology; this utilises hydrogen to generate electrical energy which is then used to run a battery electric vehicle (BEV) with a far smaller battery than a 100% battery powered BEV. The second technology is internal combustion engines fuelled with hydrogen as a replacement for diesel. Read more…
